This post was in collaboration with Superbalist.
I absolutely loved using maternity dresses for all 3 of my pregnancies purely because it was super comfortable to live in both summer and winter.
I invested in building a capsule wardrobe during my first pregnancy which lasted me until my last pregnancy – believe it or not.
It was pricey to start with but worth it in the end because I did not budge on quality.
What is a capsule wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a mini wardrobe that is made up of versatile pieces that you love to wear. I am not a fashion blogger so I do not know all the specifics but what I do know is that basically, you would need to work on the “building blocks” of a basic wardrobe. It can take you months to build up that perfect capsule collection, but it is easier than you think to get started.
You do not need to be an expert in fashion to do this. All you need to do is to make sure you plan your outfits and pieces that could potentially work together for different occasions or seasons.
I use Pinterest to plan my wardrobe and always keep an eye out for good deals on items that are like what I am looking for.
I do not shop without planning – this helps me save money in the long run too.
If you have not heard already, Superbalist hosts awesome specials on a regular basis, and they have a whole section dedicated to all things maternity. I absolutely love the variety they offer when it comes to maternity dresses. The pieces are fun, versatile, and stylish to make any mama feel confident and most importantly comfortable.
Here is what you need to keep in mind when building a capsule wardrobe:
Invest in items that are comfortable but also allow you to mix and match. Example: Investing in one good maternity jeans or sneakers is not a bad idea.
When it comes to maternity dresses, we need to think about the style we are going for and what we can add to the dress to change the look for a different occasion or season.
Example: You can use the below dress and throw a soft cardigan during autumn or a jacket in winter that can be buttoned or opened. It is a very versatile piece.
You can also wear the below maternity dress with or without stockings, boots, or sneakers.

Do not be afraid to play around with different styles and colours to find something that works for you that you can use even after pregnancy.
